... to getting fit, to getting organised, to getting things happening!
So far this year I have been on 3 walks (2 on the same day) and then yesterday I rode my bike to a friend's house to feed her dogs as she is away. I also bought a component cable so we can hook the Wii back up. Its been a while since we used it as our new TV only has 1 of the yellow,/red/white AVI options and as we only have the old school Austar it got the box (I did hear a rumour we can now get MyStar in our area which means HDMI cables baby!)
I also downloaded a fitness app - MyFitnessPal - on to my iPhone and iPad (hoping the "cloud" will sync them so that I can just use which ever device is handiest (aka not been commandeered by a child) as one of the first pre-preseason tasks for the 12WBT is a food diary. And here I have a confession to make, every other time I have attempted to do one of these I end up lieing. I "forget" to write the sweets and treats down, and sometimes thats a lot of forgetting! Why I don't know, its like ignoring the piece of cake I ate means it won't make a reappearence on my thighs! Again I am putting this out there in the hope that public accountability will make it happen.
As part of getting organised I am also decluttering - the lovely Shan from Missy Melly is doing a "40 bags in 40 days" challenge and she has motivated me to really do a cull of the kids clothes. We bought some wire basket drawers for the boys' wardrobe and I have been sorting through as I put it away. I just need to make labels now so they (and Big N) know what goes in each drawer. I am also thinking I will clean out the hall cupboard once I am done on the clothes....
I am also attempting to get things moving business wise. I am getting stock made (8 pairs of shorts for Puppy Dogs Tails to finish this morning), working on my photos and evaluating how to best get my name out there. Big N bought my a flexi-kid yesterday (did I mention how much I love my husband) to hopefully make the photo taking process easier
he also solved my problem of how to photograph the swim nappies so they didn't just look like a crumpled bit of fabric with his suggestion of using a skirt hanger (yes he really is a keeper this bloke of mine!)
I also played around with the shots of Master Q modelling one
That "photo shoot" was a fun experience, I also had Little Miss E in a smaller size as I wanted to be able to show the difference but there was no way she wanted to cooperate and I didn't get a single usable shot of her highness (if only she was old enough to bribe with chocolate). Little N also insisted on been in the pictures and I did manage to convince him to wear his new PDTs but overall it was a very time consuming process with little end result (hence the flexi kid).
Hopefully he arrives early next week and fingers crossed I will have some great pics to share when he does.
